President Obama’s visit to Cuba is the first since U.S. President Calvin Coolidge landed in Havana in January of 1928.

At this time of changing U.S.-Cuba relations and a post  Obama visit to Cuba, “THROUGH CUBAN EYES,” a panel featuring visitors straight from Cuba provides a unique opportunity for U.S. audiences to learn what’s really happening in Cuban society from a way that is not filtered through U.S. media.
